Pal Atari 2600 cartridge label/box questions

Postby Verm3 » July 7th, 2019, 3:10 pm

Did some Pal Atari 2600 cartridges have a 'P' on the end of the cartridge label? What does it mean?

Were the boxes for Pal 2600 games printed on white cardboard, or grey like a Nintendo game box?

Did they ever get printed with an empty white square where you might expect to see a bar code? Where some Pal 2600 boxes printed without any barcode?

I ask because I have just purchased my first boxed Pal 2600 game and I'm not sure what things should look like?

Edit: ok, P apparently means it's a Pal cartridge.

But I'm still not sure what a Pal 2600 box should look like.
